Legal Information Buyer’s Guide & Reference Manual 2012 Edition
Rhode Island LawPress, June 2012
The multi-billion dollar legal publishing world is dominated by three international conglomerates that control the information every practicing lawyer needs.
But for 16 years now, legal libraries large and small have had an alternative: Kendall F. Svengalis’ brilliant – and money-saving - Legal Information Buyer’s Guide & Reference Manual.
The newly released 2012 edition, essential for attorneys, law librarians, and all other legal professionals, contains the most comprehensive, up-to-date information
Useful as an acquisition guide, budgeting tool, bibliography, reference book, directory, and consumer awareness vehicle, the Legal Information Buyer’s Guide & Reference Manual helps legal consumers everywhere find the best, most cost-effective sources of legal information as well as a current reference guide to specific legal materials.
Half of the book is dedicated to substantive reviews of 1,600 legal treatises, CD-ROMs, and other materials in 61 subject specialties, each of which includes historical annual supplementation costs, critical information to help you avoid a stealth drain on your library budget. Another major portion cites the primary law sources for each state and the District of Columbia, Internet sites, legal research guides, and leading sources for state-specific materials. Nineteen chapters list the major categories of legal materials and the most cost-effective means of acquiring them.
